The best part was leaving

Posted on June 1st, 2011 2 great comments. Room for one more!

Okay, to be fair, I had a hankering for packaged pancakes and fake maple syrup on Sunday, so in that respect I found the New York Cafe Restaurant Bar & Eatery satisfying. Aside from the fact that Sarah has nice memories of the place, however, I can’t dredge up enough reasons for coming back. The prices were reasonable, but I would attribute that more to Aunt Jemima’s influence than to smart cooking. The staff were friendly enough, and the decor cheerful, but if you ask me those things should be secondary to the food. Maybe it’s because the Cafe is trying to be everything at once which, as is aptly demonstrated, usually results in not being good at anything in particular, but for a Danforth staple you’d think they’d have gotten over that problem by now.

New York, you should be ashamed of yourself.

    Babes! how dare you not find my obsession with bacon and maple syrup funny and/or cute!

    beyond that, at least I appreciate the special moments with my mother and such things even IF it's not the bestest food ever… it's about the experience and that alone can be satisfying enough for me sometimes…

    jeeez… DIVA…

    I am not excited to return one more however I still miss the days when I'd share a special lunch/brunch with my mom. So booo to you, young man, booo to you…

    1 more thing: mmmm….bacon + maple syrup…. yummm….

    True, but we can have good experience AND good food, Sarah! And about your obsession, it is kinda cute, but I should point out that that wasn't maple syrup. Or probably real bacon. :)

What's on your mind?
